Analysis of the implications of China's engagement in Africa for the United States and Africa.

In partnership with the CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies, this initiative examined the implications of China's engagement in Africa for the United States and Africa. It sought to find areas where the United States, China, and Africa could collaborate for mutual benefit while investigating the primary drivers of U.S. and Chinese initiatives on the continent. The Africa Program has produced numerous reports on the topic and hosted a major conference in December 2007 bringing together senior Chinese, African, and U.S. policymakers to discuss the prospects for enhancing cooperation in the areas of public health, security assistance, corporate social responsibility, energy security, and resolving the crisis in Sudan.
